to let the country go off the fiscal cliff. he's not going to hurt the economy. he's not going to allow that to happen. chris: is he in control? >> that's the big question. chris: "national journal." a lot of reporting now that what's going to happen the republicans are going to go with -- they're going to let defense cuts take effect because that means a lot of the domestic cuts take effect which is conservativism and getting their way. also possibly hurting the economy. although that's a conspiratorial notion on my part. what are the republicans going to do? big issue coming up. >> we reported this week that they're going -- the moving toward letting those across the board cuts go in and this is the best shot we have at it. budget control. it's going to become the law. march 1. so there's no debate about that. and to undo them, democrats are demanding tax increases. and republicans are saying no way. chris: an expert on capitol hill. kelly. what do you think -- when you go around and just chat with people, do you sense that there is this cracking of ice that maybe we should have a han
economy in the world, and you guys are in the thick of it, right? with some areas that were very depressed that are now roaring. >> well, we are really encouraged by the turnaround in california. what we reported this morning is that in the fourth quarter or california house sales increased 80% in the quarter. that's been the slowest market to turn around. but as you know, a very big economic engine in this country. and so for us california means not just our own housing start, activity in our housing operation, but also that's the major market for our west coast saw mills and ultimately for the timberlands on the west coast. >> this morning i was on the "today" show and savannah guthrie, she's fabulous, she asked me, jim, all these companies are making a lot of money but are they doing any hiring? i said not that much. what i should have said is you guys in your transcript today make it very clear you are actually hiring people right now. >> well, we are. and most of the hiring in our company today is in our wood products manufacturing business. so we are putting people back to work, addi

in washington? the higher payroll taxes, and the general sense that the economy's not getting any better. is it? the answer's simple. why you may not think the overall economy is getting better, you're missing the big picture, partner. if you were to ask me to game the market using just one figure, one figure only, it wouldn't be what apple earns, the gross domestic product, the growth rate of earnings or the dividend yield of the s&p, it would be the weekly jobless claims. the weekly jobless claims is an indicator of future employment in this country. there's absolutely no coincidence that we had five-year highs today in the stock market. at the same time that unemployment claims hit five-year lows. it isn't fanciful that the market's roaring because jobs are being created at an accelerating pace. it's the most important determinant of the stock market. after all, the market got crushed when unemployment went above 5.5% and soared right into the great recession. i think these positive jobless numbers are occurring because of the certainty that comes from putting a presidential election and a t

government ought to do and the performance of the economy that will dictate where these debates go. as peter alexander just mentioned, hillary clinton is the early favorite. that rare interview she and president obama sat down forgave us a peak into their relationship and how things have seemingly changed in the last few years between them. is that a surprise looking at where we started in 2008? >> on the face of it, it is a surprise. they have evolved, people close to secretary clinton have talked about this kind of interesting relationship that has developed. it has certainly been very constructive. they are happy to make a public show of it. those of us that cover the ins and outs of this will look at it in the the 2016 contest, wondering if vice president isn't so happy that the big interview he does to begin his second term is not with him but the outgoing secretary of state. those questions will be raised. i think the point that's interesting to me. if you look at the coalition of voters that president obama put together for his second term, they seem to be voting blocs that could natu

and an economy that is really trying to get the consumer back to spending, i highly doubt that retailers are going to charge this fee. >> reporter: in fact, the national retail federation polled its members and found that none planned to add the fee. toys "r" us and target told nbc news they would not pass the buck to their shoppers. retail analysts say that's because most big chain stores have the ability to negotiate lower fees with credit card companies. but small businesses don't have the big chain bargaining power. silvia karch is the own other of a vintage clothing store. short of a cash-only sign, she is shoirlgtd the fees. >> in order for me to implement another charge, i would have to discount my prices are, it there is a balancing act. i would wouldn't want to have another charge for my customers. >> reporter: not everyone should be worried. ten states already have laws on the books banning merchant surcharges, including some of the biggest, california, new york and texas. still, the power is in the consumer's hand. shoppers could pay cash or use a debit card, which doesn't inc
